A combined effort from Indian bowlers saw them restrict Australia to 118 for eight and later chased down the revised target of 48 runs from six overs in the rain hit first Twenty20 global in Ranchi.

Australia will have to win Tuesday's match in Guwahati to avoid another series loss, after a deflating 4-1 drubbing in the one-day internationals. David Warner and Aaron Finch would look to carry on their fine touch & inspire their team but it's skipper Smith who might have to look inwards to rediscover his best form. The wicket of Rohit Sharma by Coulter-Nile did give Australia some hope but Kohli came in and ensured there were no further hiccups and he along with opener Shikhar Dhawan took India to victory with three balls to spare. He will be replaced by Marcus Stoinis in the squad for the series.

However the match was interrupted by rain when Australia reached 118/8 in 18.4 overs.

Australia could be without captain Steve Smith for the opening Twenty20 meeting with India on Saturday due to injury.

Kohli has smashed four half-centuries in his last four matches against Australia, three of them unbeaten. Both the sides have locked horns 3 times on the Indian soil where India have won all the three of them.

The skipper's absence will be a huge blow for the Australian side, who were humiliated in the recently concluded ODI series.

Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav struck again in the 13th over as he bowled all-rounder Moises Henriques for eight runs. "So, I think we can easily beat Australia 3-nil in our own backyard", Sehwag said on India TV's "Cricket Ki Baat" show from Ranchi. The match is scheduled to kick-start at 7:00 PM on 7th October Saturday.
